Paper Towns (by John Green)

Given how much I loved Looking for Alaska, and how much my friends love his other books, I'm going to work my way through Green's ouvre. So this one is Paper Towns and it's also awesome. It's got an Alaska-ish character named Margo and a Miles-ish main character named Quentin, but it also has fun characters and unique situations and surprising depth for a YA book. I particularly loved the crucial role played by Walt Whitman. Gotta love it.

Anyway, Green is awesome. If you like YA, give him a shot.
